Armistice 100 - Bells to ring out as the nation says 'thank you'

The Bellringers at Dronfield Church, and the Dronfield Handbell Ringers, will be joining ringers nationwide to pay tribute to those that served during the First World War.

This unique commemoration on the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice, will recognise the significance of the end of the First World War, and the sacrifice made by so many men and women during the war.

At 10:30am on November 11th, Remembrance Day ringing, on half-muffled tower bells, will take place prior to the Remembrance Day Service which will take place in the Library Gardens.

At 12:30pm open ringing will mark 100 years since the signing of the Armistice to bring the First World War to an end. This will coincide with the ringing at towers up and down the country and as The Peoples Procession passes the Cenotaph in London.

The Handbell Ringers will also be ringing at 12:30pm in the courtyard of The Barn, as their contribution to the occasion.

At 7:05pm, the Church bells will ring out and the Handbell Ringers will ring in Sindelfingen Park, as the beacon is lit as part of the national commemorations to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Members of the public are welcome to attend any of the events.
